Photo essay: Paço de Calheiros

A night’s stay in a 12th century manor on the hills overlooking Ponte de Lima was a great introduction to Portugal and its history.  I’ve mentioned Paço de Calheiros in this previous post about the small producers of Portugal.  On Count Calheiros’ property, he produces vinho verde wine, marmalade and olive oil; he also opens up his home for those who want to take a break from the city and soak in some of Portugal’s traditions.   Here’s a peak inside:
